Bruins’ Don Sweeney Credits Jake DeBrusk, Unsure Of What Future Holds

Among the many questions the Bruins face this offseason is the future of Jake DeBrusk. The forward requested a trade out of Boston this season, but a deal never got done for DeBrusk. Instead, he signed a two-year contract extension at the NHL trade deadline — something he said he was happy about — but it’s unclear if he will be with the Bruins when the 2022-23 season begins.

Jake DeBrusk Opens Up About Uncertain Future With Bruins

When Jake DeBrusk requested a trade out of Boston in late November, most thought the 25-year-old effectively tipped the hourglass on his Bruins tenure. But not only did the Bruins keep DeBrusk in house through the March 21 NHL trade deadline. The organization also watched the fifth-year pro take his game to the next level over the final month-plus of Boston’s 2021-22 season. And as it turns out, those might not have been DeBrusk’s final weeks in a B’s uniform.

Jake DeBrusk gives update on status of his Bruins trade request

Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk had a strong close to the NHL regular season and played well in the team's first-round playoff series defeat to the Carolina Hurricanes. DeBrusk tallied 12 points (seven goals, five assists) in 15 games in April, and he followed that up with four points (two goals, two assists) in seven games against the Hurricanes. He proved to be a strong fit with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron on Boston's top line.

Bruins' Jake DeBrusk: Turns tide with controversial goal

DeBrusk had a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Sunday's 5-2 Game 4 win over the Hurricanes. DeBrusk's controversial game-tying goal late in the second helped set the stage for Brad Marchand's game-winner early in the third. Carolina challenged for goaltender interference, as DeBrusk pushed goalie Antti Raanta's pads with his stick before knocking the puck in, but the officials deemed the contact incidental. The failed challenge resulted in another Boston power play, which later turned into a two-man advantage, and DeBrusk wound up assisting on Marchand's go-ahead goal just as the 5-on-3 was expiring. This was a much better performance from DeBrusk, who had produced just one assist over this series' first three games.
